We're looking back at some of our favorites heroes for Black History Month (28 days worth, to be exact), and today we shine the light on Agent 355.

The heroine from Y: The Last Man is one of the baddest ladies in comics, tasked with guarding the last man on Earth ... which, by association, means she's also protecting the future of the human race itself. No pressure, right? Along the way, she has fought a Russian spy on top of a moving train and ripped out a man's throat with her bare teeth to protect the president. She also has a killer sense of style, and knits. You know, to take the edge off.

Deceased or not, Agent 355 is still a legend in our book — and a true hero.

Join us in our celebration.
